  • Description:
    Key Actions:

    • Reduce injuries and deaths in motor vehicle crashes by increasing seat belt, child safety seat, and booster seat use

    • Protect teen drivers with comprehensive Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) systems and parental monitoring

    • Reduce alcohol-impaired driving with evidence-based prevention strategies, such as ignition interlock programs

    Target:

    Indicator: Rate of motor-vehicle related fatalities

    Baseline: 13.8 deaths per 100,000 population (2007)

    2015 target: 9.5 deaths per 100,000 population (31% reduction)

    Key Accomplishments: Deaths from motor vehicle crashes have reached historic lows. What’s more, between 2009 and 2011, encouraging improvements were shown in the percentage of teens who wear seat belts, do not ride with a driver who had been drinking alcohol, and do not drive a car when they had been drinking alcohol.
